@sbasak: that would have to be number three now; the koenigsegg has lost it's podium to the mighty veyron; official guinness quotes expected by 06'....

as for the damn reporters: PUH-LEASE do SOME research before printing these articles- out of the few million people out there who read this crap, a few hundred thousand ought to be enthusiasts, and it's a shame putting the daily's reputation on the line for such serious (seemingly trivial) erratums...

its hard to really say which car is the fastest as all the mags have a different ranking.

The best is to go to the company websites and decide for yourself.

Where are the Mclaren F1, Ferrari Enzo, Porsche CGTs in the list when there are Ford GT, Aston Martin Vanquish, etc. Why do they want to print without correct information.
